Abbey Runners ‘Eccup 10’ Annual Fundraising Road Race!

Sunday 5th July 2015, Abbey Runners will be staging our annual road race, the Eccup 10 mile.  Every year this race raises around £3,000 for local charities including Sue Ryder, Wheatfields and the Holly Bank Trust. It attracts hundreds of runners and their families from across Yorkshire.

The race will start and finish at Adel St John - the Baptist Primary School on Long Causeway  (LS16 8EX).  Road closures will be in place on and around the course 9:00-12:00pm.  You can use the course map here to assess how the race may affect you or so you can choose the best place to come and watch!.

The closures impact primarily upon the following roads:

The organisers have written to all business directly affected by the event confirming detailed race day arrangements and have met with other stakeholders to ensure that any inconvenience is minimised. As in previous years, letters have been delivered to all residents affected by the closures and advance road signs are now in place.

If you wish to know more about the race, please feel free to contact the organiser - Martin Browne - by email ( or phone (0113 831 3139).


Alwoodley Parish Council is looking for enthusiastic and committed people to join us

in continuing to improve the Parish of Alwoodley.

You would need to regularly attend the monthly meetings of the Parish Council.

Take an active part in our work, joining Working Parties involved in various ongoing and new projects.

Internet access is advisable as a lot of our work is done by email between meetings.

We welcome your ideas and suggestions to improve the area for the benefit of all our residents.

Don't worry if you have no experience – we didn't either when we started! Introductory training courses are available for new Councillors.

The important qualities are commitment and common sense. A sense of humour and patience can be great assets, too, for those times when we come up against red tape.

Alwoodley Parish Council is NON-POLITICAL, NON-RELIGIOUS and we welcome people from all walks of life.


Why not come along to one of our meetings to see us in action and have a chat with us  afterwards  to find out more. Or write to us giving a few details about yourself, explaining why you would like to join us and your ideas for the future of Alwoodley Parish.
